Insightful book examining inequality between men and women. An easy to read book detailing the history of women’s inequality in Australia whilst also setting out a way forward to enable gender inequality.
No Not Equal! Authors Dr. Dina Bowman and Ms Yvette Maker
Despite the efforts over the past 150 years to change laws to benefit women, and more lately to change different aspects of society, inequality between men and women remains deeply entrenched. Yes – it’s true many women are now highly educated and financially independent, but many more struggle in low-paid jobs or no jobs, and often with little help to raise their children. It is apparent that men and women continue to allow unconscious bias to govern their beliefs and expectations about gender that shape so many personal and professional decisions. No! Not Equal sets out a way forward to help overcome the economic and social gender inequality in Australia that continues to hamper women’s ability to realise their full potential.
